Lord Speedy of Leighton

One of those 'I'll never use it but I need it' purchases. Huge fan of Aliens, and I've been eyeing up the Marines set that very sensibly they sell separate from the new Aliens board game. Saying that, I did use them on Wednesday when Cliff at the LB club brought his copy of 'Space Hulk' down and we played it properly!

The heroes of Hadley's Hope

Apone, Hicks and Deitrich

'Eat this!'

Bases come pre sculpted with names too

Weisbowski, Crowe, Hudson and Frost

Team of ultimate badarses!

The camo nearly sent me blind!

Vasquez and Drake

Love the animation on these two

Drake was a nightmare to assemble, all the rest were a dream

Gorman and Burke

One a man out of his depth, the other a nasty little toad

Newt and Ripley

Newt's sculpt is soooo cute

And here they are in action on Wednesday, Three of us played 4 games, it was hilarious!

Hudson : Seventeen days? Hey man, I don't wanna rain on your parade, but we're not gonna last seventeen hours!
Ripley : Hudson! This little girl survived longer than that with no weapons and no training.
Hudson : Well f@#$%in'-A man, why don't you put her in f@#$%in' charge?

Hudson: "We're on a express elevator to hell.....go'in down!!!"
